This summer I read several books on self-sufficiency, and one of them mentioned growing sprouts. I decided to give this a shot, and ordered a sprouting jar set up. It has three different lids to allow you to flush out the water regardless of the size of your seeds, and it also allows you to have multiple jars going at a time.
I put together a collage to show you the progress over 5 days. For this jar I just used regular lentils from my pantry. You can get all sorts of seed assortments specific to sprouting, and I have since ordered a few to try.
So I started with 1/4 cup of lentils and soaked them overnight. After that, you start flushing them with water twice a day. It's really very simple. The boys enjoy helping and watching the sprouts grow.
Readers, do you like sprouts? How do you like to eat them?
